Sometimes when you start small, or begin something new, you can feel a bit like an imposter or a fraud.
You tell yourself, ‘why should someone trust or like something that YOU have created?’
That feeling can seem so strong and real, it’ll leave you thinking you’re stuck in your circumstances or have made all the wrong decisions.
Can you relate?
Truth is, sister: we’ve all felt this way- and it’s just as untrue for all of us.
In this episode, listen in to the audio version of Chapter 4 from Own Your Everyday as some truth bombs are dropped on how to eradicate these lies and step into your purpose.
You’ll learn how to identify the reasons you’re holding yourself back (ahem – expectations), the tangible steps to take to break through the mindset limitations, and how to kick your fear of embarrassment.
Because your purpose is way too important to settle for anything less.
If you enjoyed Chapter 4 from the book, I know you’ll resonate with the other chapters as well! Grab your book here!!
Ever feel that you are merely attempting to look confident, rather than actually being confident?
It can be easy to lose yourself in the process of the image you are trying to portray- rather than actually being the person you want to be.
Sister, it’s time to kick the insecurities by facing them head on – and this is the episode to help you do just that. Listen in to grab a sneak peek of Chapter 3 from my book, Own Your Everyday. Together, we’ll lessen the distractions from the life you were made for.
I hope you find yourself laughing from quirky stories while also transforming from the mindset shifts you’re about to experience.
It’s time to break ground to break the barriers and step into a lifestyle of owning the responsibility of your insecurity, making a plan on how to respond, and digging into the dirt rather than covering it up.
It’s time to step into the women you were made to be.

“I am almost enough.”
Have you ever said this to yourself? Or perhaps it’s a thought that constantly cycles in the back of your mind?
If only you were just a little more talented, or skilled, or smart, or funny…THEN you’d be able to execute on that dream. THEN you’d be successful in your endeavors. THEN your business or mission idea would for sure work.
If so, you aren’t alone, friend.
It’s time to rally the troops and stop allowing that limiting narrative to hold you back from making an impact. Even if you aren’t exactly sure what that looks like just yet.
In this episode, Jordan brings on powerhouse CEO/Founder of the Dressember Foundation, an annual campaign to raise awareness and money for anti-human trafficking work. Listen in as they discuss how Blythe’s small idea transformed into a dignity restoring non profit, how she has raised over $5M, and where her idea was surprisingly birthed in the first place.
Gal, if you have a knack for business and heart for missions, this episode is for you.
Blythe brings the fire with knowledge, wisdom, and better yet – hands on experience, around beginning a movement, building a non profit, overcoming self-doubt at any stage of the game, and weaving together your passions with your individual skillset. In this inspiring discussion, you’ll learn:
– Why bad ideas are indeed not bad, but a good thing;
– Why you actually are NOT enough (spoiler alert – NO ONE is) and why you should embrace that;
– Why holding your goals and vision loosely can lead to great growth; and
– Why it’s important to get creative with your own journey.
Sister, if you want to make a difference, but you’re feeling stuck, unsure, or have unfigured out dreams – you’re in good company.
Release yourself of the fear of others seeing you ‘start small’ and start asking yourself, ‘What can be created at the intersection of my passion and skillset?’ Maybe that crazy idea is the door to your destiny. And will impact the lives of women around the world.
And when your vision just doesn’t seem to make sense, remember Blythe’s wisdom, ‘Maybe your path isn’t linear because it’s bigger than the vision you have for it currently.’

I call my inner critic Sally. Sally because she’s like a salamander that slithers in and tells me eeeevvverrrything that’s wrong with me.
When I let sally sneak into my ears I begin to hear her with the words that come out of my mouth. I pick apart how my arms look in photos. I say that I look less toned than last year. I say I need to lose this, fix that, whatever. And that only makes other people feel uncomfortable and it makes me feel small.
So, today I’m reminding all my sisters who may struggle with her own little inner Sally to fight back.
STOP CALLING YOURSELF FAT. Stop asking if those jeans make your butt look big. Stop making pointing out how weird your legs look in that photo. Stop picking your body apart in front of other women — it makes them feel uncomfortable, and often prompts them to wonder if perhaps they, too, should be analyzing how toned their arms are. Stop picking your body apart in front of yourself, too. That is no way to talk to yourself, sister.
If you wouldn’t say it to your friend, do not say it to yourself.
Seriously. Tell yourself to shut your mouth and go USE your body to love the world or help somebody else.
Take care of your body. But please do not for one more second believe that the parts you don’t like somehow make you less valuable than you’d be without them.
Own your worth. Be yourself. Go do something productive and shut your inner Sally up.
